A Sentimental Journey Island Indigo Phone Booth Card

feeling sentimental phone booth card

This Sentimental Journey Island Indigo phone booth card was one of the first that I made with this set.  After stamping the phone booth and tearing the paper I did a little sponging and added some hash marks with the Island Indigo marker to resemble the lines in the stamp.  I wasn’t sure if I liked it so I’ve been slow about showing it here.  🙂

I used two Sale-a-bration goodies in this card: the Sentimental Journey stamp set, of course, and the ribbon from the Sycamore Street ribbon & button pack.

Sentimental Journey Antique Phone Booth Stamp

I’m back with another Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental greeting card.  And once again, I think the vintage stamps in this set are marvelous including this old-time phone booth.  I stamped the phone booth on a Top Note shape, die-cut from black cardstock with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine.  I stamped it in White Craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I centered the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Rich Razzleberry button with a rhinestone and adhered it to the card with glue dots.  Celebrate was stamped in black and quickly punched out with the Extra-large Oval punch.

Bloomin’ Marvelous Color Chalk Butterflies

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

This little butterfly number features two exclusive Sale-a-bration products the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set & Vine Street Embossing Folder.  The card base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder and splattered with a little Melon Mambo reinker.

To create the butterfly panel, I started with Basic Black cardstock and rubbed it lightly with the Whisper White Craft Pad.  After heat setting the craft ink, I prepared the panel with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped a couple of butterflies with VersaMark.

I heat embossed the first set of butterfles with the Melon Mambo embossing powder, then stamped a couple of more butterflies, heat embossed that set with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  And then finally stamped a couple of more butterflies and heat embossed with the Pool Party embossing powder

One butterfly was stamped on a scrap of basic black, heat embossed, punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and blinged up with a little rhinestone.

If you look closely, you’ll see that I scored a couple of lines on the top and bottom edges of the butterfly panel with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I also ran the edges across the versamark pad and heat embossed it with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.

Congratulations on Your Graduation!

summer silhouettes congratulations graduation card

My son-in-law Chris recently graduated from college!  A fantastic accomplishment, and we are so happy for him and his family!  This is the card that I created to acknowledge this great achievement.  I kept it masculine with earthy colors and images.

To create this masculine congratulations card, I started with a card base of Natural Composition Specialty paper cut 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  The Natural Composition dsp has a cardstock weight so it’s perfect for a card base.  I paid special attention to the orientation of the embossed lines of this paper before I trimmed the card base out.

The leaves stamp is from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set and I stamped the left side first in Summer Starfruit and then in Always Artichoke.

I used the strip of paper left over from cutting out the card base to create this tag.  I stamped “congratulations” from  the Sweet Sentiments stamp set on the backside of the embossed paper and then punched the ends of the tag with the Curly Label punch.  I added a bit of Linen Thread to the tag before adhering it to the card base with dimensionals.
